I don't think most people do, they are too fixated with conspiracy theories. It's hard for the corrupt and shallow minds to understand because to them, everything is normal and fine. It's like asking a turd if it notices anything different about itself, well a turd is a turd, to a turd, it is normal
Ask intelligent people, the ones who have been following the rules from day 1, they know...... Ask health care workers who have to deal with the nasty patients day and night, ask basically anybody in the customer service industry, or dealing with the public............
What I see is a huge change in society and I don't think it's good.
Really ? You think so ?
I see dying infrastructure.
Don't worry, Biden'll take care of that, few trillions here, few quatrillions there, no problem, he is in a giving mood
I see dying employment.
In a way true, kinda, you should see there is dying interest in some jobs, some jobs have openings not being filled because nobody wants to do the jobs. There will also be more jobs requiring higher academics in the future, yeah I guess employment will take a hit since we are being replaced by automation, but some things cannot be replaced, and with Biden the Magician in power now, expect millions of jobs lost in America because of his Green Economy plan, green my arse ! I just can't wait for the Republicans to win back the Senate in 2022, someone has to stop the Democrats from taking the economy hostage, because when the US's economy is in the slump, so is ours
I see dying schools. I see dying education.
Ahahaha education, what's that, you mean How to Fornicate 101, how to do drugs 101 and how to shoot with a gun 101, yeah, spot on, it's been dying for a long time, even before the pandemic. As responsible parents who want the best for their kids nowadays, who in their right minds would want to send their kids to school anymore, every single day you don't know if your kids will come back home to you or if they will be shot by their class mates !!! seems like there is a shooting every other day now, seems schools now are used as shooting range ! Then you have the issue of teachers being afraid, afraid that they will get punched by their students or shot, and they know they cannot even lay a hand on them or their shit for brain parents will show up and they will be the ones beating the teachers - lovely society we live in indeed. I see a bright future where everyone is home schooled, REMOTELY, no shootings, no nothing, teachers would feel safer that way. You should say instead PROPER education and PROPER schools are a dying breed. It doesn't have to be that way, bu the shit for brains who are running things have other priorities, you know, like finding aliens in outer space, or exploring Mars, as if we are going to go live there smh !
I see death of paper money.
It's becoming less popular but it still will remain the preferred choice for criminals
Yes paper money is less popular because people want FAST FAST FAST convenience, just pay with your card and done deal, and with the credit crunch, people put everything on credit. Even in Casinos one day cash will be a thing of the past, you can just put your bank card in a slot machine and watch it eat away at your life savings!
As far as ATMs, not quite yet, it will soon be the only way to get cash because ATMs is what will replace bank tellers, ATMs will become more interactive and smart, bank tellers will be replaced by digital assistants, this is how ONLINE only banks work, they have no physical branches, but you can withdraw cash money using ATMs so I don't think ATMs will disappear anytime soon, they will just be transformed, in a future you will see banks replaced by ATMs, where you can pay your bills (not everyone will be able to afford internet and expensive computers), you will be able to withdraw or deposit bitcoins and other virtual currencies by scanning your wallet's QR code and money getting transferred to your bank, etc, ATMs have potential for future, not actual human beings, and that's a good thing because customers won't have to deal with rude customer service anymore, and customer service and workers won't have to deal with IDIOT customers who think they know better anymore, so it's not all bad - in a world of the future, the less human contact the better it will be because humans will be wild animals out of control so it's best that everything be virtual moving forward...........
Quote:I see the total loss of privacy.
ahahahaha the moment you install apps on your phone or connect to the internet, you forfeit any privacy - but privacy is subjective - some people make a huge deal out of it - your OS, your APPS, etc, collect aggregate information and track your preferences, they don't track your name, address, phone number, date of birth etc, I would not be worried about the internet, because as long as you are not an idiot to use too much information in your social media profile, there is nothing there to steal ...... the only issue is smartphones, people store all their contact info there, so some apps could technically gain access to your contacts. Some parents are absolute IDIOTS and will disclose the home address, post pictures of their children, where they go to school, etc, on facebook, some people post statuses of everything they do - when they leave the house, when they go to the toilet, etc, and then people have the nerve to talk about privacy
I see a lot of changes.
Why stop there Valerie, you were on a roll
Do you see it yet?
I've seen it a long time ago and the biggest and most obvious change is with people. A lot of people have become so selfish and mean, it doesn't take much for someone to blow a fuse, when you are in public, nowadays it's road rage, people hitting one another, fighting, for STUPID things, a lot of people have lost their values, it's the era of the me-myself-and -F.... I and nothing else matters ....... Want proof ? 1 year later we are still in the middle of a pandemic that seems to have no end, and we won't likely see any end until late 2022......... It could have been over with since the end of last year if people showed solidarity and collectively worked together to help stop the spread of the virus instead of relying too much on shit for brains politicians who are bad examples and treat the virus as a joke !
